I don't hate twitter, I just choose not to use it. My opinon is a bit skewed as I do not have an account, but my understanding is comprehensive enough to make the right decision. For me (as many have highlighted), the service is just excessive in minor updates. One particular superfluous tweet being:
"@Awesomesaucesome dude, this sandwich needs less lettuce, you suck at veggieburgers".
While some feel immediately compelled to instant tweet their friends about their sandwich incompetency, I communicate fine with forums, IMs (AIM,YIM,Steam,Xfire), telephone,e-mail, fax, time machine, texts, fog machine, comments, drum machine, telepathy, smoke signals, messenger pigeons, telegraphs, photo sharing services, social networking sites, Morse code, and of coarse radio. Additionally, I do not care about your sandwich or your sandwich making technique and I like lettuce, even though too much makes one eat like a tortoise. Clearly, apathy is my biggest gripe with twitter.
